DAINTV EASTER CONCEIT8.

Th ideal E a iemembianceriiB: In
harmony with the influence* of the
day, and it covers a multitude gifts
appropriate in every a for the feast,
the season and the individual tastes.
From the simple Easter card the cus
tom of exchanging gifts at this season
has grown almost as widespread as
Christmas giving. Th Easter displays
in the shops in connection with the
bright flowers, spring millinery, new
goods and other temptations in the
way of shoppers are made as much of
in a business way. Th fashions
change, however, and what as consid
ered as thoroughly artistic last year
looks just a bit shabby now. Th
dainty elegance of what is to be had
this spring in anticipation of the de
mand shows the hold the festival has
in the popular favor.
The Easter souvenir par excellence is
a flower. I represents all the senti
ment of nature's reawakening because
it is her most choice gift to earth. "Be
hold the lily in its glory." Th odorous
,and a white blossom has grown to
be typical of the day, and it is the
queen of Easter fragrance and charm.
If you know anything at all about
flowers—and if you do you are just as
sure to love them—it amounts to a post
graduate course in a floral education to
stop at a florist's window or walk
through the shop.
All the bulbous plants are now in the
height their beauty. The lilies nod
their handsome heads in a most pat
roniziug way over the tuiips, jonquils,
azaleas, narcissuses and the fragilf
lily of the valley. Genesta bushes,
sjorgeous in their coloriug, are valued.

pretty jar filled with cut lilies is an

suggestive of the feast? Th flowers

After flowers the regulation Easter
souvenir is most likely to take the
shape of candy, books, cards and all
the pretty trifles which have grown
so fashionable in late years. The long
fast from candy which the feminine
world is supposed to have been keep
ing all Lent, both in the interests of
piety and health, makes it naturally a
most welcome gift. Whe it comes,
hidden a a in the beautiful and
artistic bonbonnieres which are sup
posed to be especially suggestive of the
season, then the gift is really a joy, if
not forever, a least for a good, long
time. Three-fourths of all the novel
ties are either chicken or egg shape
or have this suggestion somewhere in
their make up. ~r
As an Easter emblem the egg is far
ahead of anything else. W it is so
may be partly explained by he fact
that the Lenten fast of the early
church did not permit the use/ of eggs
any more than meat. A any rate, the
egg has the field, and nothing disturbs
it. There are eggs of silver, 5hma,
•glass and every other material, as well
as sugar. Some *f the china and silver
ones are superbly decorated and can
be put to many uses as a box. Many
of the large ones have music boxes
hidden a a in them. Tiny silver
eggs, adorned with a wishbone or with
fat Cupids astride of them, are other
Some of the newest bonbonnieres
are made of straw lace braid, so
trimmed up with the satin bag lining
and the ribbon rosettes that if it as
not for the little chick perched in one
corner the whole affair might be taken
for a spring bonnet. A pretty
doll, dressed in a watteau and
a much Deflowered bonnet on her yel
low curls, has concealed under her vo
luminous petticoats a receptacle for
